“If you have a sweet tooth then look no further than the five-star Killarney Park Hotel for the ultimate in treats. The hotel’s pastry chef Dinesh Maurée is fast becoming a celebrity among those with a passion for wonderful desserts and luxury chocolate – think Killarney’s very own answer to Willy Wonka!
Dinesh hosted us in the Park Restaurant during the week – and to say his creations are divine is an absolute understatement. He has a passion for working with chocolate and adding his own unique twist to bring out its delicious flavour.
Because his reputation went before him, we did our best to leave ample room for the delectable tasting plates – even though that is difficult, so tempting is the entire menu there!
Not only did we get to enjoy three of his exquisite creations, including homemade coconut sorbet and pistachio ice cream and but afterwards we were presented with a box of luxury handmade petits fours.
These pieces of chocolate heaven were seriously impressive and looked way too good to eat. But never fear, in our readers’ interests, we rose to the challenge! Made inhouse by Dinesh, the chocolate tasted as spectacular as it looked.
Originally from Mauritius, Dinesh moved to Ireland 11 years ago after working in a number of leading hotels in Mauritius. He has worked in Dublin eateries La Stampa, Shanahan’s on the Green and Ely’s Restaurant.
He and his wife Mirela Tkalec moved from Dublin to Killarney with their children Lara and Ella.
Come on in and enjoy Dining at Killarney Park Hotel – a treat you will never forget!”
